Horrific abuse of young people in Northern Territory must lead to real change


National advocacy organisation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, ANTaR today called for the sacking of Northern Territory Minister for Corrective Services, Justice, Families and Children, John Elferink following harrowing footage of abuse of young people in detention at Don Dale youth detention centre.

ANTaR National Director Andrew Meehan said that the treatment of young people in the program, almost all of whom were Aboriginal, was just sickening, and the perpetrators and those in charge of the justice system must be held to account. Read our Press Statement here.
